Scotland, 1849: Midwinter in a remote village on North Uist and twelve year old Morag has a terrifying encounter in the dark. Is it a beast or is there a more sinister threat which stalks the island? As the villagers turn to folk-lore for protection, Maria, the island owner’s new wife, arrives on North Uist hoping to escape her past. But her past is catching up with her and time is running out for both Maria and the islanders.
For fans of Hannah Kent’s Burial Rites or Sarah Perry’s The Essex Serpent, Unearthed is a story full of magic and wilderness which explores themes of social justice and gender which still resonate today. A novel for book clubs everywhere.
“A delight to read: a gripping Gothic historical novel. Written beautifully with real power and atmosphere.” Livi Michael, author of the Succession trilogy.
